Question

a) Assume the firm operates in the monopoly market in the long
run with the demand function P = 100-Q and TC = 640 + 20Q with TC
showing the total cost of production, Q and P respectively of
output quantity and price. Using the information above,
publish

i) Total revenue function (TR)

ii) Marginal revenue (MR)

iii) Marginal cost function (MC)

iv) Determine the level of price and quantity of production that
maximizes profit

v) Determine the amount of profit earned by the monopolist

Answer #1

1) Total revenue function = P*Q = (100-Q ) *Q = **100Q -
(Q)^2**

2) Marginal revenue can be found out by differentiating total revenue function with respect to Q

**MR = 100 - 2Q**

3) Marginal cost can be found out by differentiating total cost function with respect to Q

**MC = 20**

4) In order to maximize profits, the monopolist equates MR = MC

100 - 2Q = 20

Q = 80/2 = **40 units**

5) Profit = total revenue - total costs = 100Q - (Q)^2 - 640 -
20Q = 4,000 - 1600 - 640 - 800 = **$960**

. A town has a monopoly supplier of potable water. The
monopolist faces the following demand, marginal revenue, and
marginal cost curves:
Demand: P = 70 – Q
Marginal Revenue: MR = 70 – 2Q
Marginal Cost: MC = 10 + Q
Graph these curves.
Assuming that the firm maximizes profit, what quantity does it
produce? What price does it charge? Show these results on your
graph.

Consider a Monopoly. Suppose the Demand function for the
industry is Q = 440 − 4P. The total cost (TC) function for the firm
is TC = 2.25Q^2 + 1,600. The marginal revenue (MR) function is then
MR = 110 – 0.5Q. If the marginal cost (MC) function for the firm is
MC = 4.5Q, what is the price the Monopoly will charge?

A monopolist facing a market demand Q = 240 – 2p has the total
cost function TC(q) = q2. Draw carefully the relevant
graph with MC, MR, D curves and identify all relevant points,
intersections, intercepts.
(a) What is the monopolist’s profit maximizing quantity and
price?
(b) If the market is reorganized as perfectly competitive, what
should be the market price and quantity?
(c) Calculate the DWL associated with the monopoly in (a).
Now the government notices that the monopolist...

4.Which statement isincorrect?
a.A pure monopolist’s demand curve is the market demand
curve.
b.A monopoly produces a product for which there are no close
substitutes.
c.Marginal revenue is less than price for a monopolist that
cannot price discriminate.
d.A monopolist’s market position ensures positive economic
profits.
5.For a firm with monopoly power that cannot engage in price
discrimination:
a.the marginal revenue curve lies below the demand curve because
any reduction in price
applies only to the last unit sold.
b.the...

Your hospital has a demand function given by P = 404 - 2Q where
P is the price of hospital care and Q is the quantity of hospital
care. The marginal revenue (MR) function is given by MR = 404 – 4Q.
The total cost function (TC) is given by TC = 300 + 4Q +
8Q2 and the marginal cost (MC) is given by MC = 4 +
16Q.
Find the total revenue (TR) function which is a function...

A firm is considering entering a market where demand for its
product is Q = 100 - P. This demand function implies that the
firm’s marginal revenue function is MR = 100 - 2Q. The firm’s total
cost of producing the product for that market is TC = 860 + 20Q +
Q2 which indicates that its marginal cost function is MC = 20 + 2Q.
Calculate the firm’s profit and hence indicate whether or not the
firm should enter...

Assume the demand schedule below and TC function below to find
maximize profit, Total Revenue (TR), Total Cost(TC), and max
profit. Using the MR=MR (Marginal Revenue) approach or Excel
(Solver).
P = 10 - .5Q
TC = 10 + Q - .4Q2

McCullough has a monopoly on rental dwellings in the local
community. The demand function for rental dwellings is Q = 70,000 -
50P. McCullough's total cost of providing rental dwellings is TC =
0.005Q2 + 20Q
a. What price will this monopolist charge? What quantity will it
sell? How much profit does McCullough make? (8 points)
b. What would output be if DD acted like a perfect competitor
and set MC = P? What profit would then be generated? (6...

Consider a natural monopoly with the following total cost
function: TC= 1000 + 20Q and the demand given by P = 140 - 2Q. If
you would like to eliminate the deadweight loss completely, what
pricing would you suggest that the government imposes on this
monopoly.
P=MC=20Q and a subsidy to make sure that the monopoly can cover
the fixed cost
P=AC=20 and a tax to move the quantity traded to the efficient
level
None of the other answers is...

10. The demand for milk and the total costs of a dairy are
specified by the following equations:
P(Q) = 100 − Q
TC(q) = 30q
(a) Suppose there is a monopoly in the industry. Derive an
equation for marginal revenue of the monopolist. Graph the demand
and marginal revenue curves.
(b) Derive the marginal cost (MC) and average cost (AC) of milk
production. Graph MC and AC on the same graph as (a).
(c) Show the monopoly’s profit-maximizing price...
